    Trying to get a grasp of for what I need as far as steering goes. I have a lot of slop in the steering and the worst of it seems to be at the bell crank where it pivots on the crossmember. Anyone else have this issue and what are some common failures? Most of the play is between the bellcrank itself and the shaft it mounts too. On top of that, there is a little play where the shaft passes through the crossmember. There is also a little slop in the rod ends, barely notable but I might as well change them out while I have it all apart. Other than that, I went back today and got the engine and trans separated, then put the engine on a stand. Now if I only had a 289 crank..........
